Comments
Strategy: Inform (through media) trucking companies of work zones or other congested areas they could be approaching will have a score of 4                         For Strategy #12.1 A1: Include Smart park
For strategy #12.1 G1: Include Load shifts/size
    Has anyone considered allowing truckers to park on the shoulders (at night) for truckers to sleep           Rumble strips into new and existing roadways has already been done. Interactive truck rollover signing are at small radius curve. (e.g switch backs with existing speed warning signs). Provide variable/differential truck speed limits "Modify speed limits" phrase should be taken out from strategy #12.1 E3
